The aim of the project has been the registration and research of spaces that are somewhere in between. These are the interspaces between two equivalent spaces, between spaces that have clearly defined functions and content and are taken for granted. Interspaces are spaces that are not initially perceived as active. We are talking about overlooked areas. The aim was to (re) design interspace of larger structures. With intervention these interspaces obtain a story, an innovative new program and content, a new identity and a new correlation with the environment. The interspace has to become a space which one does not merely pass through.
When the space loses its anonymity, becomes noticed and is no longer interspace but THE SPACE.
